Early morning storm causes gas station roof to collapse in Bellefontaine

The early morning storm was a factor in a roof collapsing at a gas station just outside the city around 4:30 Wednesday.

The Bellefontaine Fire Department reports the roof on the Village Pantry/Marathon Gas Station on North Main Street collapsed due to the early morning storm and from the build-up of water on the roof causing structural damage.

No one was inside when the roof collapsed.

The gas station is closed until the damage is repaired.
